For the holidays I am giving my family a working computer. Theirs just crashed and I have one sitting around that can play [email protected] or [email protected] youtube videos.
Its old, and here are the specs:
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
2x1gb of DDR 2700 ram total of 2gb
300w power supply
ATI Radeon x1550 AGP
40gb Western Digital SATA Hard Drive
Windows 7 32bit PRO
I am wondering what games this old machine can play at minimal settings; note they don't have to be new. Please note games that require SSE2 won't work. As some of the family does play some games.
Also I will give them a newer computer every year. Next year I have an Athlon x64 3200+ @2.3ghz (Slightly faster than the Pentium 4 3.4ghz with HT) with 2.5gb or 3gb 2700 ram.
As of right now the most powerful games they play is Minecraft and league of legends. But I like to know what games this machine can run in case they ask.
Elders Scrolls 3 - Morrowind will keep you occupied for a few hours.
Starcraft sould work
First Splinter Cell (should work)
Medal of Honor (possibly)
Call of duty 1 & 2 (and possibly 3)
Out of 3D games that I've actually played, I would expect all of these to run:
- Battlefront (original)
- Dawn of War
- Empire at War
But I honestly have no idea if these require SSE2 and I can't seem to find that information quickly.
There are also lots of isometric strategy and simulation games that should be no problem.
I remember playing battlefront II and Oblivion on this computer so I know it can play those too.
I think Skyrim though crashes on it because it requires SSE2
